Settle down, Bieliebers! It’s just a little crush. Justin Bieber took to Instagram on Tuesday to share with his 33 million Instagram followers which lovely lady he’s currently swooning over.
“Wow Kelly makes me feel some type of way,” the 21-year-old singer gushed over his celebrity crush, Kelly Ripa, 44, who was wearing a sexy, white lingerie set in the picture he posted. “No disrespect,” he added. “I know she’s married! #bigcrush.”
That’s right, the "Live! With Kelly and Michael" star has been married since May 1996 when the media darling said “I do” to her “All My Children” co-star Mark Consuelos. The duo eloped after dating for just one year and now have three children together. Their oldest, Michael, is only three years younger than the “Beauty and a Beat” performer.
In fact, when the pop star paid Regis Philbin and Ripa a visit in February 2011 during “Live! With Regis and Kelly,” Ripa reminded Bieber that she had a son his age.
“You’re very kind to your young fans. And I was so impressed by that because I think at this point in your life -- you’re a teenage boy, I have a teenage boy, you must have some extraordinary level of patience because you were very kind to the kids backstage,” she said to the singer nearly five years ago.
But despite Ripa being twice Bieber’s age, we totally understand why he’s head over heels for the bubbly morning show host. In December 2014, the Emmy Award winner dished during Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” just how she and her husband keep their marriage exciting.
“Lots of sex,” she bluntly revealed to the show’s host, Andy Cohen. "I fundamentally believe that the more you do it, the more you do it, the less you do it, the less you do it.”
The petite star went on to admit how in love she is with her hubby. "We just like each other a lot. I love my husband. I think he's awesome. We've been together a really long time. We try to do spicy things together all the time,” she said, admitting that one of those “spicy things” is sending her beau tantalizing pictures.
"I sent him a cute, adorable butt selfie in my underpants. It's the only time I've ever sent a semi-nude anything, ever!” Ripa revealed.
Sorry, Bieber! Looks like Ripa only has eyes -- and butt selfies -- for one man.
